3.1 Using Virtual Machines to Serve Data

This short guide discusses using a virtual machine and a hypervisor (VMware Server) to serve data. In the guide we cover both serving data with Hyrax running within a VM and also using Hyrax in a workshop where the hypervisor is VMware Workstation. You cannot actually serve data to remote users with Workstation, but it's a great environment in which to learn about the server's different capabilities. In both cases the advantages of using a VM are that the server runs in Linux on the virtual machine while you run the hypervisor under any of its supported operating systems. An additional advantage is that the hypervisor can be used very effectively in the context of an overall security plan.
